New user, new poster. Basics:

Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit

Oracle JRE/JDK 1.8

Vanilla minecraft 1.12.2

Using port 995 via privbind

I have full access to the server. I am looking to move to McMyAdmin v2. I understand that I can move my existing vanilla server files into the Mincraft folder under the MCMA user dir. I am using port 995 for several reasons based on the environment where I am hosting the server. Is there a way to either customize the startup in MCMA to use privbind or another way to use privileged port 995?

Recommended way is to actually run it on a higher port and use iptables to redirect the desired lower port to the higher one.

Thanks, I was considering something similar. Did not know if there was a more direct method.

Not really, AMP doesn't like running with any kind of elevated permissions.
